The Shyne School is located in Woodinville, Washington; just about 1 mile south of Redmond city limits, on Avondale Road. We specialize in programs for children ages 1 to 6 years old. Parents have the flexibility to choose from three different daily schedules for toddlers through Pre-Kindergarten. The School also accepts a limited number of before and after school children including those up to 6 years old during school holidays.
We feel that working with parents is very important. We let parents know what is happening at school by talking with parents daily, leaving notes if we miss you, filling out accident and incident reports when needed, and a daily communication note pad so parents can leave a note concerning their child. All the teachers read the note pad daily so that they will know what needs to happen or will be happening for your child.
Parents receive classroom newsletters as well as a school newsletter every other month. Teachers post their Lesson Plans so parents can see what is happening in their classroom and ask their children specific questions about their day.
Teachers document the children’s learning and set up times to meet with parents for conferences once a year or upon request. We are here to help and encourage parents to use us as a resource!
ANNUAL CENTER EVENTS
We host annual center events that continue to build community. In the Fall, we host a Curriculum Night for each class to start the year off and to share with parents the classroom and information about the curriculum being offered. In December or January, we have a Holiday Potluck to bring the whole school together. Spring we have classroom events to celebrate Valentines and Mothers Day. At the end of the year we celebrate Fathers Day with a picnic. The children also have classroom celebrations throughout the year and go on field trips.
As a school we also reach out to help the community twice a year. In the Fall, just before winter break, we do a giving tree and food drive for the local YWCA Transitional Housing Program in Redmond. We do different events in spring such as Trike-a-thons or Hop-a-thons for MS. The last two springs we have raised funds for The American Heart Association in February with a “Jump for Heart Health”. In 2012 we raised $1720.00 for AHA and studied how to make our heart healthy with good nutrition and exercise.
